The Transport Network has reported that following the Prime Minister’s reshuffle, Grant Shapps will remain as the Secretary of State for Transport. Chris Heaton-Harris has also retained his position as Rail Minister. There were several Ministerial changes at the Department for Transport. George Freeman, who was only appointed Minister of State in July 2019, lost his position, as did Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Nusrat Ghani. New appointments to DfT include Kelly Tolhurst (Rochester and Strood), who will serve as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Andrew Stephenson (Pendle), to serve as Minister of State.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
